Unfortunate. I would like to see the 12" versions of "Yellow Pearl" & and the equally great "Together" available on CD.

It's odd that the 2:58 version is marked on compilations as the first 7" remix and the 3:20 version as the second because I always felt it should have been the other way around. At least according to Wikipedia, it was the 2:58 remix without the female spoken intro that hit the charts in Dec 81 and was featured on the Phil Lynott album in 1982.
It's a real shame the 12" has never been released on CD and for that matter all the modified versions that were made for the TOTP. Here is a link to a fan made version of one of them

Oh wow, I've had this edit for years and always wondered where it came from. I honestly thought it was a legitimate release from back in the day. It is, by far, my favorite version of the song. So, after many years, THANKS for this, bigarbel! Great job!
